Our independence from popular thinking and investor influence keeps us grounded in reality and focused on change that can truly make a difference.
Support CATF’s work to safeguard against the worst impacts of climate change by catalyzing the rapid global development and deployment of low-carbon energy and other climate-protecting technologies through research and analysis, public advocacy leadership, and partnership with the private sector.
Catalyzing Solutions for Climate Change
CATF is one of two global organizations working on climate change recommended for funding by Founders Pledge.
From their Climate Change Cause Area Report, Founders Pledge has estimated that a donation to CATF would produce benefits on the order of $1 per tonne of CO2e. Equivalently, a $100 donation would avert between 100 tonnes of CO2e.
“CATF’s role in the environmental NGO ecosystem has often been to focus on sources of emissions that are neglected by other environmental NGOs, to conceive and design pragmatic campaigns to target those emissions, and to crowd in support from philanthropists and other larger environmental NGOs. CATF also produces high quality research, which is well regarded among the philanthropists, scientists, policy experts, and government bureaucrats that we have spoken to.”
